Our bodies are a matrix of energy which includes our emotions, beliefs and intentions. We empty and we fill. We express, love, create, withhold, destroy. We are cyclical and mysterious. We are connected to the world.

We learn to hold or release our breath, body, and awareness based on what is needed for survival. Often a movement, impulse, thought or emotion gets trapped in the physical body, over time creating discomfort, pain or illness. Through movement and awareness we can access freedom, strength and a balanced energy system.

The body is a gateway to transformation. Everything is energy, your breath, your blood, your thoughts, your noticing, your movement. Pain in one system also lives within other systems. All systems entwined. Energy follows consciousness, our everything follows our awareness, what we choose to give life to.

Dance is at the core of everything I do. It has taught me and shaped me for over 30 years. I fully credit my constant engagement with dance and performance with my teaching as well as healing skills. Dance is mystery, embodiment and transformation. It gives a platform for communication on a level alternative to words, with groups of people, nature, community. I love the whole creative process, the following and honoring that occurs, the hard lessons and the pleasure. Now, whenever I choreograph, perform, teach, or work with clients, I am in constant conversation with the energy and nature of the work, the spirit that is being shaped or shared.  I do my best to get out of my own way, to surrender.

My passion is this- the discovery, support and unwinding, and movement towards the best of:  the body, the dance, the spirit, the psyche, the mystery, connection, the earth, each other.
